The enormous amount of resources invested into the development of Israel’s cardiology sector over the last decades has helped to create numerous innovative diagnostic methods, which allow cardiologists to identify diseases of the cardiovascular system at a very early stage. Simultaneously, a tendency to forego invasive surgeries for minimally invasive surgeries, allow doctors to solve these problems with an extremely lesser chance of complications. These breakthroughs lead to an overall higher success rate in battling heart disease leading not only to an increased ability to save a persons life but also dramatically improve a person’s quality of life.
Israel’s proficiency in fighting potentially fatal heart illnesses is evidenced by the fact that heart disease is not the country’s number one cause of death, as is the case everywhere else in the world.
Israeli proficiency is demonstrated by statistics seen in the World Health Organization. These statistics show that the lowest death rate from heart attacks in the world, least complications after heart surgery, the largest number of high-tech interventions and heart transplants per quota, are all things that we see in Israel. For this reason, every year, more than half a million patients from abroad (most of which have cardiac problems) arrive in Israel for advanced diagnostics and high-tech treatment.
The enormous amount of high-tech medical innovations coming out of Israel (highest per quota in the world) and the vast experience of Israeli cardiac surgeons, allow for the implementation of difficult surgical interventions. One such example is coronary artery bypass grafting performed either on the stopped or beating heart, or a combination of both. Another is the installment of prosthetic heart valves through minimally invasive surgery with impressively low percentages of complications. These great feats along with many others are achieved through the use of new minimally invasive high-tech devices such as advanced lasers and robotics as well as the highest level of professionalism from the specialists who perform the procedures.
